Torchwood Season 2 in US

It has now been confirmed (for those in the United States) that the second series of Torchwood will air on the BBC America channel, premiering on January 26th! This also gives us a fair indication as to when the UK will be able to view it on BBC2 (we have been told it's not too far behind).
